New ‘Star Trek’ TV series officially on the way

star trek

(From Geeks of Doom) The last time that a new episode of a Star Trek TV series was on the air was over a decade ago when Star Trek: Enterprise ended its fifth and final season.

Whispers of a new TV show have come and gone from time to time, especially after J.J. Abrams successfully rebooted the movie franchise in 2009, but now a new series is officially on the way. It’s being reported that Star Trek movie writer and producer Alex Kurtzman is developing a new take on the beloved franchise for television, which he will also executive produce. But those of you excited about news like this have even more to be excited about: the franchise is already established enough that, instead of waiting for a pilot to be ordered and made and watched to decide if they want to give it a full series, this new show has already been given the full series order. There is, however, a bit of a catch.

The first episode of this new Star Trek TV series has already been scheduled to premiere in January of 2017 on CBS. After that first episode airs, all subsequent new episodes will then air exclusively in the United States on CBS’s video on demand subscription service, CBS All Access, which will run you $5.99 per month.

The show will also be distributed concurrently for television and multiple platforms around the world by CBS Studios International.
